2008 BUDGET EXTENSION PASSED UNANIMOUSLY

Today, our city council met at Twelve O'clock Noon to address one agenda item: Resolution 22-2008. Here's a copy of that item: Resolution 22-2008. After a short discussion, the 9 members present voted 9-0 in favor of extending the current budget for a time period sufficient to provide the new council an opportunity to pass a budget for 2009. A new budget must be in place prior to February 1, 2009 or the city will be out of compliance with state law.

We should be proud of our city council for taking this important step in keeping city services functional. All city services will continue without interruption.

There is a holiday schedule in place for various departments. Those schedules have been published already.
